Freeze warning issued as cold air moves in Sunday night

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- A cold front crossing the Triangle today will usher plenty of clouds and showers into the Triangle, leading to near freezing temperatures Monday morning.

The sky will start to clear late Sunday afternoon. High pressure will build in from the west tonight, then drift over the region on Monday.

A few clouds will be around Sunday night, but the clockwise flow surrounding the high pressure system will draw much colder air in from the north. Low temperatures will be close to the freezing mark early tomorrow morning.

Some of the typically colder outlying areas will fall below freezing. It will remain cool Monday despite a good deal of sunshine with highs only in the mid 50s.

Monday night into Tuesday, we will be closely watching a developing area of low pressure along the Gulf Coast.

There is the potential for this to bring quite a bit of rain to the area Tuesday and Tuesday night as it lifts northeastward depending on exactly how close to the coast it is.

However, there is still a great deal of uncertainty regarding this area of low pressure this far out. High pressure will build back over the Southeast Wednesday and Thursday with moderating temperatures.
